Here is a photograph of one of the walls Seth, Schuyler and I curated for the Summer show which is currently up in the Gallery. When curating this wall, we were thinking about color, textures and interactions between artworks. Starting on the lefthand side, we compiled smaller works of Pat Goslee and Ellyn Weiss. This arrangement of smaller works keeps the eye busy jumping from square to square. We paired these works with Brian Dupont’s Pipe Piece which brings the art even further off the wall.
Continuing our theme of vivid blacks and bold marks, we placed Joan Belmar’s work next to Nancy Frankel’s metal floor sculpture. These pieces respond very well next to each other because they all have such strong textures which further enhance each piece.
As your eye continues down the wall, we brought in an element of Japanese art with Freda Lee McCann and Allen Steele. Both works contain Japanese writing. McCann’s landscape painting brings out the pinks in Brian and Pat’s work. Below Alan Steele’s painting we have one of Mei Mei Chang’s mixed media works. Mei Mei’s jagged edges and diverse materials give a nice transition into my abstract silver gelatin photograms paired with tiled photographs. Lastly, we have Susan Stack’s gold circular pen on paper piece. This gold color ties the rest of the wall together as you continue further to the right.
